Call for Papers

The vision of ubiquitous computing has generated a lot of interest in
wireless ad hoc and sensor networks. However, besides their potential
advantages, these new generations of networks also raise some
challenging problems with respect to security and privacy. The aim of
this workshop is to bring together the network security,
cryptography, and wireless networking communities in order to discuss
these problems and to propose new solutions. The fourth ESAS workshop
seeks submissions that present original research on all aspects of
security and privacy in wireless ad hoc and sensor networks.
Submission of papers based on work-in-progress is encouraged. Topics
of interest include, but are not limited to the following:

  Privacy and anonymity              Cooperation and fairness
  Secure topology control            Secure localization
  Secure in-network processing       Security for embedded systems
  Prevention of traffic analysis     Key management
  Secure routing                     Secure MAC protocols
  Secure time synchronization        Distributed intrusion detection
  Location privacy                   Trust establishment
  Secure context aware computing

Important dates:

        Submission deadline:         January 31, 2007
        Notification of acceptance:  March 31, 2007
        Camera-ready version:        April 15, 2007

Instructions for Authors and Workshop Proceedings:

Authors are invited to submit a complete paper of their original 
work. Maximum length for submissions is 15 pages in LNCS format. The
preferred submission format is PDF and for the final version the
sources of the contribution in LaTeX will also be required.
Submissions must not substantially duplicate work that any of the
authors have published elsewhere or have submitted in parallel. All
submissions will be refereed. Accepted papers must be presented at
the workshop. Further information on how to submit papers will be
available on the web site of the workshop:


As in previous years, we expect to publish the proceedings in the
Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) Series (currently
under negotiation). Note that this year the final proceedings volume
will be distributed at the workshop.
